Does Lysol kill scabies on furniture?

Answer

According to the makers of Lysol, the product is not useful against scabies. Lysol Disinfectant Spray is advertised as being able to kill most viruses and bacteria. However, scabies is a skin infection caused by a tiny mite.

Scabies mites burrow under the skin and lay eggs. This causes a rash and severe itching. The condition spreads though direct and extended contact with an infected person. According to the Centers for Disease Control, scabies should be treated with a prescription medication designed to kill the mites. The itching usually stops within 2 to 4 weeks of treatment. The CDC does not recommend any over-the-counter treatment for the skin condition.
